The Sound of Silence


Hullo my tuneful readers.

Today's Top 10 music countdown was put together with inspiration from my Flickr group... Sounds of Secondlife. I've also added the list of images, with links to the very talented artists, who inspired the music countdown.

Since my start on Flickr, I have given my images names based on a song. That theme has also made its way to my blogs. Music has been such a huge part of my life and I wanted to tie that in with my other love, photography. I created Sounds of Secondlife to promote not only amazing, creative and brilliant art works but to promote all genres of music. All are welcome to join and all safety levels are accepted. Please name your image after the song title to be added. =)

Eventually, I will take the Sounds of Secondlife in world and feature artists in the SOS Gallery @ Deelights Resort. To be considered for art exhibitions, please join the Flickr group and add your images.

At the end of each month, I'll be choosing a new group cover for the following month. To be eligible to have your art work featured, please join the group.

For our June group cover, I am pleased to announce a beautiful image from Katey Zeplin titled 'The Sound of Silence.' Make sure to check out her work and show a lil support. Katey has a beautiful avatar and creates stunning and thoughtful images, with a dash of sexy, sweet and sassy. ^^

I hope you enjoy today's sights and sounds of the Sounds of Secondlife. The image was captured at The Wastelands.

Love Song



Hullo, my loving readers.

Firstly, I'd like to make an update about an item I blogged in the last post. I had a glitch with my hair which was the group gift from :::Phoenix:::. I sent a notecard with my issue and received a prompt reply. Sadly, it does seem to be a glitch on my end but the creator, Lilly Herberg, was lovely enough to gift me a gorgeous pack of new hair, which I'm wearing in today's post. :::Phoenix::: has amazing hair and brilliant customer service. Make sure you check out the store today! ^^

My skimpy and sexy outfit is the group gift available at *BE Designs*. To receive yours, join the free group.

I am posing with table and picture frame from irrie's {Dollhouse}. You can add your photos to the picture frame. You can grab both gifts after joining the free group.

The cute lil beach cabin can be found on the marketplace from Simple Things & Forever Summer.

I hope you enjoy today's loving look.

Broken Talk

Hullo, my laid-back readers.

Today's shopping trip came with a world full of glitches and a male model who won't change his shoes. *giggles*

Jake Gallagher is helping me showcase an amazing male outfit from ***GIULIA DESIGN***. The only downside to the outfit, according to Jake, is the hat is small and can't be modified. The hat comes with an alpha but it looked unnatural with his head size. He was also unable to wear hair with the hat but that wasn't an issue and you might be able to find a hair that works with it. The outfit is free after joining the free group. He is also wearing his favorite black sneakers which are almost free on the marketplace.

I stopped by .::Pink Sugah::. to try and hunt down their item featured in the Mayday Hunt. Find out more about the Mayday Hunt here. I found it pretty quickly (go me!) then hurried home to unpack the item, only to find the applier was not right. It applied a green tartan texture, not the gorgeous red print the dress comes in. I sent off an IM to Pink Sugah owner, Tara Asamoah, letting her know there was an issue. She replied immediately and promptly fixed the problem. I can't thank Tara enough for her kindness, professionalism and perfect customer service. Make sure you check out her store for sexy, sassy and boobie friendly designs!

Once the dress was sorted out, I ran barefooted down to The Secret Store to grab their adorable group gift, a pair of blue polka dot t-strap heels. The group is free to join.

My hair is the group gift from :::Phoenix::: It comes in three different versions; normal, for boobs and fitted/bounce. There are eight color HUDS included, plus a HUD for the headband. I'm wearing a light blonde hair and white headband. Sadly, there does seem to be a glitch with the boob friendly version, where the hair shows through the mouth and chin. You can still use the hair for posing but it's not suitable for every day wear, sadly. There is a L$50 group fee. I have sent a notecard to the creator about the glitch and will blog any updates to the product. =) [UPDATE: 28 May 2015. The glitch was on my end. See next post for more details.]

So after all that, I headed on down to Crestwick Island to capture this laid-back image. I was exhausted by that point. ^^ I hope you enjoy today's look.

L'Enfer Et Moi

Hullo, my vocal readers.

This weekend marks one of the biggest events on the world stage, with the longest running annual TV song competition, Eurovision under way! So far, two semi finals have been completed and the only thing left is to hear the finalist sing their amazing songs and hear the voting.

This year, Australia was invited to take part as guests for the 60th Eurovision and Guy Sebastian will be singing in the final, which will be televised in Australia on Sunday night. Fingers crossed we don't come last. ^^

For those of you who aren't aware of Eurovision, each member, or invited, country submits a song to be performed on live television and radio and then casts votes for the other countries' songs to determine the most popular song in the competition. The contest has been broadcast every year for sixty years, since its inauguration in 1956 and is one of the longest-running television programs in the world. It is also one of the most watched non-sporting events in the world, with audience figures having been quoted in recent years as anything between 100 million and 600 million internationally. (Information taken from the Eurovision Wikipedia Entry)

Today I have put together a list of my Top 10 Favorite Eurovision Songs. A lot of amazing artists and now, very well known artists, have graced the Eurovision stages over the years and this is just a tiny piece for you to enjoy.

I went for a slightly risque image because there is always something a lil risque at Eurovision. I hope you enjoy the sights and sounds of a Eurovision weekend.

California Nights

Hullo, my high readers.

I'm not sure how it happened but today's songs make the perfect soundtrack for a stoner afternoon. *giggles* You can thank a whole stack of amazing artists who have released albums in the last month for today's Top 10 New Rock Tunes. There's a lot of big sounds from some unusual instruments and some very laid back tunes inspired by the 70s.

The image was inspired by the song California Nights and captured at El Diablo at Scorpion Bay. I hope you enjoy the sights and sounds of a stoned Sunday.

I invited porn star, Lexi Fizzle, to see the newly remodeled cum bar and extreme events venue, Debasement @ Deelights Resort.

It was a quick but tasty shoot in the new grungy playground.

Debasement features: Gang bang cage, Pole dance and sex tables, Lap dance chairs, Sex bar, Cum barrel, Sex sofas, Lounge area with with 3sum sofa, rug and speaker. To get back to the main Deelights Resort, use the elevator.

Baby I Don't Care

Hullo, my retro readers.

If you've had a manic Monday, just like I did, then I have the cure for you. And nooooo, it's not the song Manic Monday! I'm saving you from that guilty pleasure today but I do have some amazing 80s tunes to rock your socks off. This is my Top 10 Fave Tunes from the 80s. This was a hard list to put together because apparently I love lots of songs from the 80s.

I was going for an 80s pin-up look for my image, which was captured at Elysion. I hope you enjoy the sights n sounds of a manic Monday. =)

Traveling Alone

Hullo, my lonely travelers.

My first stop on today's fashion trip was Amiable. They have a number of group gifts available which you can collect after joining their free group. I am showcasing the skirt, tie and straw hat. Please note that while the hat is adorable, it's hard to find the right hair to fit under it but as you can see, it works perfectly for photos.

Then it was off to Moon for hair. They now have a L$100 group fee but there are a number of gifts available, including a new release hair. (not pictured) The amazing retro wedges are from Livalle and are free for SL Free & Offers Group members.

From the marketplace; Top from Body & Clothing, travel bag from Bella's Lullaby and pose from {willard}.

The song, Traveling Alone, is from the new album by Passenger, Whispers II in association with Unicef UK. 100% of the profits from the purchase will go to Unicef and their campaign to help and eventually prevent children suffering from chronic malnutrition in Liberia. Order your copy from www.passengermusic.com (Information taken from Youtube)

I wandered down to Lobby Cam by Bryn Oh to capture this dreamy image. I hope you enjoy today's look. =)
